An Inspired Itinerary - A Full Day of French Impressionism
From here we will hop into a taxi to head north to the famed artist quarter of Montmartre, where on our afternoon stroll we will delve into the heart of 19th-century Parisian creativity. Together with Laurent, we'll visit the haunts and havens of the artistic elite at Place des Abbesses, the Moulin Rouge, and Place du Tertre. At the Bateau Lavoir, we will see where the artists met to discuss their new artistic philosophy. We’ll admire the majestic Sacre Coeur Cathedral and the church of Saint Pierre as we take in this charming neighborhood and its sweeping views of Paris below.
Even before getting his university degrees in Law and Business, Laurent was the youngest “guide-conférencier” to obtain his license in France at the age of 16. With an authentic passion for art and history, he had a previous career in international business and marketing before focusing entirely on his job as guide. An art collector himself, particularly fond of painting, he attended open courses at the Ecole du Louvre and graduated from IESA art school. His purpose, thanks to a very participative approach, is to make you see and understand art rather than just learn about it.
